Dora's adventures are one of my daughter's favorites. She likes the stories and likes to learn Spanish with Dora. She already picked-up a lot of words. Recently she got a book full of new stories and activities to make with Dora and her friends. She was busy with it for the most part of the morning. When she said she was hungry, I proposed to her to make a Dora sandwich. She loved the idea and helped with the preparations. When everything was cooked and ready, she placed Dora's eyes and mouth and helped with the hair. It is more yummy when made by the little hands:)
1/2 of a small eggplant
1 slice of round bread
1 slice of orange cheese (I have used Kraft Cracker Barrel Cheddar Sliced Cheese)
1 brown olive
1 black olive
Did you know that some 18th-century European cultivars of egg plant were yellow or white and resembled goose or hen's eggs, hence the name " eggplant "?
Step1 Cut 2 slices of the brown olive and chop off ends of the black olive - put the black olive inside the brown olive to make the eyes. Prepare a slice of brown olive for the nose. Cut a moon shape from the red pepper to make the mouth.
Cut a Break eggs into a bowl and beat lightly with a fork. Place the bread slice into the bowl letting it soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Transfer the bread slice to frying pan pre-heated with oil. Fry slowly on both sides until golden brown. Transfer bread slice on the baking tray covered with non-stick baking paper. Cover with cheese and broil in the oven for few min, until the cheese melts.
Step2 In the meantime, cut the eggplant into cubes and fry it with oil and spices in the frying pan for few minutes, until tender. When it is tender, mix it in a mixer or using a blender to obtain a mousse texture.
Step3 Place the bread in a plate to make Dora's face. Make her hair with the eggplant mousse: just place the mixture around the bread using a spoon. Place the olives to make Dora's eyes and nose. Place the pepper to make her mouth. Enjoy!
